English Literature student offering English (literature + language based), and History tutoring in and around Birmingham.

Methodology

I will tutor anyone up to A-Level age, regardless of ability. My priority is in boosting a student's confidence and helping them to develop their skills - it's more than exams (although of course we'll work on those skills if desired), it's about sustainable learning that truly prepares you for the future.

Background

I am half-way through my English Literature degree, and have been working with young people (in groups) for almost two years. I have helped A-Level students to get the grades needed to enter their desired universities, helped struggling GCSE students pass, and primary school children improve their confidence.
